Contents Notes
Reproducible method for generating representative samples of wear debris from vehicle brake pads, designed to simulate on-road conditions while generating a reasonable quantity of debris in a feasible brake dynamometer use period. Performed a mass balance of the wear debris generation process looking at both total and copper mass loss and mass collected in the airborne and deposited material fractions. Sample characterization included scanning electron microscope photos, particle size distribution counts by scanning electron microscopy, surface chemical analysis by energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX), and thermal gravimetric analysis.
